Waikiki Beach Weddings

What to Know for a Waikiki Beach Wedding

 

Waikiki Beach is probably the most famous beach in Hawaii. Located on the south coast of Oahu fronting the hotels, nearly every visitor knows this stretch of sandy paradise.

It’s important to note that the State of Hawaii does not issue wedding permits for most of Waikiki Beach. There is one particular part on the western end of Waikiki Beach (Kahanamoku Beach) where a permit can be obtained for beach weddings, and this is where we hold the ceremonies.

Unlike our other Hawaii beach wedding locations, we don’t yet have a dedicated photo gallery for this location. We have done several ceremonies here because couples have asked for this location. You can think of Waikiki Beach as our “secret menu” item, not on the usual menu, but if you ask for it, we can do it for you!

Tips for Eloping: 9 Dos and Don'ts for Your Destination Wedding

Posted by Rachel H. on Apr 20, 2020 3:22:15 PM

9 Tips for Planning Your Destination Elopement

 

We’ve been helping couples plan their Hawaii elopement for over 40 years, and we’ve seen the term “elopement” change over time.

“Eloping” used to mean the couple getting married in secret, then telling family and friends they were married after the wedding took place.

Nowadays, “eloping” typically means having a destination wedding, but it's just the couple celebrating their special day together. For some, it could even be a small wedding with family and closest friends to witness your vows!

Small Hawaii Weddings

A Small Hawaii Wedding - Easy and Affordable

 

Since 1978, Weddings of Hawaii has been planning small beach weddings and elopements here in beautiful Hawaii.

With most traditional weddings having a guest list of 150-200, many consider anything less than 100 people to be a small wedding. However, when you compare a traditional wedding to a destination wedding in Hawaii, “big” and “small” take on different meanings.

Many are surprised to discover we think of a “big” wedding as 50 or more. For us, a “small” wedding is usually 20 or less. We know a 20-person wedding sounds super small, but sometimes less is more!

Posing Tips for Your Wedding Photos & Videos

Posted by Teri S. on Feb 11, 2020 9:12:00 AM

Capturing memories with photo and video is an important part of your day, and we want to give some tips to make sure you look your best and are comfortable with your team.

Keep in mind your attire can be a factor in how comfortable you'll be. There's a big payoff for choosing wisely for your beach wedding dress and groom attire for a beach wedding! Besides your clothing, here are our tips for your photo and video shoot.

Photography

Our professional photographers will greet you with a warm aloha and lead you through everything from start to finish. They know it’s not every day you turn up for a photo shoot, so they’ll do their best to make you comfortable.

Tips to Remember:

  • Relax and enjoy yourselves. The day is meant to be fun, so don’t take the photo shoot too seriously.
  • Let your photographer know if you have any special requests. If there’s a particular pose or photo you’ve seen on our website that you know you want, just ask.
  • Have good posture. Standing and sitting up straight are more flattering.
  • Not sure about your smile? Mix it up. Your photographer will take a lot of pictures, so feel free to try a variety of expressions.
  • Don't be late to your ceremony or it'll cut into your photo/video time.
  • Following your ceremony, your photo shoot will start with group shots. If you have a large amount of guests, prep them so they know not to disappear. These take more time than you might think. 
  • Love on each other. You’ll see the emotion and joy in the final pictures!
  • Here are another 9 photography considerations to help you be as prepared as possible.
